Sicon Software Version Updates


Sicon Software Version Updates

At Sicon we take the development of our products very seriously. With many hundreds of organisations and many thousands of users relying on them on a daily basis, it is essential that they are up to the job.

We currently work to a 6 month development cycle, with full product releases taking place twice a year.

During the development cycle (between official release versions), there will be pre-release versions available to Business Partners and clients who wish to use new features as they are added. These versions will not have documentation added to the web site help and user guides for the new features and will not go through the full testing process until the end of the development cycle, but will be suitable for demonstration & testing purposes. They will include selected Wish List items and project specific functionality.

We will install these versions onto live systems where the new features are needed but clients should be aware that there is a small risk associated with using a pre-release version. The risk is small or we would not allow it, but where the benefit outweighs the risk we are happy to work with clients to deliver improvements to the products early (if Customers do not wish to have a pre-release version, they will need to wait for the release version to become available). This version will not be available for Business Partners to download, but will be available where we are working on joint projects and developing specific functionality.

What are the benefits of a software upgrade?

  1. Improvements to performance and software stability
  2. New product features, including wish list requests
  3. Bug and error fixes to resolve potential problems
